Don't worry, I am sure Marvel already has the Red Hobgoblin arc planned..........

If recent history is any indication, there will be Venogoblins and Carnagoblins and Kobolds and Blue Goblins and Black Goblins and Yellow Goblins and Toxic Shock Goblins and Snoop Dogglins and...well, you get the idea...

Agree with RMA about Hobgoblin being a missed opportunity. The Green Goblin was long dead, Spider-Man had no real nemesis for awhile and suddenly this new villain arrives and has everybody going gaga over him. Who is the Hobgoblin was a huge storyline. Hobgoblin could have been the next great Spidey villain. It was so disappointing for him to be Ned Leeds and killed off so disappointingly. 

So when he turned out to actually not be ned  Leeds was that a retcon? 

And I think it would be hilarious if the mcu ned turned into hobgoblin later in this series...maybe post credits of far from home we get this:

Here is mine.  Got it raw at a comic store auction 30+ years ago for $17, if I remember correctly.  I think it's about a VF, and has the tats.

But I also have the 1st Ned Leeds, and 1st Roderick Kingsley.

Technically, but not really. It was the character's creator finally setting the record straight. Hobgoblin Lives explained why the story never made any sense.

The end to the Hobgoblin saga was an editorially mandated mess. Nobody involved was ever happy with it.

Thanks for your kind comments

The books are signed by the three Romitas: John Sr, John Jr, and Virginia Romita, who worked at Marvel for 20 years.  She's listed on the ASM #238 title credits as "traffic manager"  I've got several more copies in the process of being graded by CGC and I'll update the photos once I receive the additional books.

And you are correct, those are the original cover art to ASM 238 and 239.

I like clubs! @jjonahjameson11 gets to be the president though!  The original art is sick. How does one even source where to buy that?

I seem to remember the 238 original art got sold thru a Comiclink auction at some point a number of years back.  Neat to see it again.

Looks as though the opportunity to obtain a CGC NM9.8 White pages copy for under $1K was very brief.  Prices now very solidly above $1K, headed towards $1.1K
